DeLaSalle High School Library & Technology Center
The DeLaSalle Library and Technology Center (LTC) provides a welcoming atmosphere with natural light, suitable for research, study and learning. The library serves as a meeting place, study space, and access point to traditional and electronic text, literature and resources. Our library space is fully equipped with books, computers and display facilities for student art and comfortable work spaces for individuals and class groups.
Our notion of collection continues to expand as our Destiny catalog offers seamless access to all materials, books, e-books, articles, websites and more. The LTC has become the go-to place when students need anything from homework and research help to tech help or a comfortable place to study, read, catch up on emails or gather their thoughts. The LTC is a place where students are able develop research techniques to navigate databases and the ability to evaluate their findings, which skills they will need in college. As students discover more about their areas of interest, the library staff helps them find information on topics that excite them.
The Library and Technology Center is open school days Monday – Thursday from 8:00AM to 6:00PM and 8:00AM to 5:00PM on Friday unless otherwise posted. Students and their family members are welcome to use the books, computers, and media resources available for assignment research, personal growth, and recreational reading. The library is in the “A Building,” room A219 directly across from the Robert Casanova Room, near the entrance to the Main Gym.
